Weight Watchers Old Fashioned Pot Roast with Gravy is the ultimate comfort food – made in the slow cooker, it’s easy to set it and forget it.
We got a little cold snap here this week and it made me want to eat some comfort food. Nothing says comfort to me like a big ol’ bowl of Weight Watchers Old Fashioned Pot Roast With Gravy.
I love a good pot roast and have tried several versions. This one rates right up there with some of the best ones I have had. What makes this one even better is that it is Weight Watchers friendly. Meaning points wise it is not too bad. It comes from a magazine I purchased quite a while back. And whenever I need a little bit of comfort food, this is what I make. It freezes well too so you can separate it into individual portions and have some whenever you need a little something to warm you up.
I’ve had this recipe up on the blog for a while but just redid the photos so I’m bringing it back up to the top. I could eat this every day. And this week I did! Just when I thought I’d get tired of it, I’d heat up a bowl and just smile from happiness that I had some to eat again.

NOTE: Points will depend on meat amount so please use the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers app to figure out your points if you use something different than what I have here.
I evenly divide the meat by weighing it out and then divide up the vegetables and keep in individual containers for easy one serving meals.
